Learn to build production-ready Serverless applications

Check out my consulting services

I have helped many teams go faster for less by helping them adopt serverless technologies successfully. 

I can give you the lay of the land and help you understand if serverless is right for your use case. I can also provide training to upskill your team quickly and for the right projects, build the MVP for you.

Find out more I'm new to Serverless and AWS. I want to know if it's right for my business and how they can help me realise my product idea and take it to the market quickly.

Read "Serverless Architectures on AWS, 2nd Edition"

Check out my new book with Peter Sbarski and Ajay Nair. We feature a number of real-world examples of serverless architectures and give you practical tips on how to architecture serverless applications - from choosing the right AWS service to work with, to understanding the scalability and cost implications of your design decisions.

Get the book I'm already running on AWS, but I'm new to Serverless and want to learn more about use cases and get a lay of the land.

Attend "Production-Ready Serverless"

In my Production-Ready Serverless workshop, you will build an e-commerce web app from scratch and learn:

  • how to test a serverless application
  • how to secure REST APIs
  • CI/CD best practices
  • operational best practices to help debug issues in production (logging, monitoring, alerts, etc.)
  • how to build event-driven systems

Find out more I have started working with serverless technologies, but I want to up my game and make sure I'm well-prepared for running serverless applications in production.

Watch my video course "Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good!"

This video course will teach you best practices for working with AWS Lambda in byte-sized lessons (4-6 mins each). The areas covered are performance, scalability, security, resilience, observability and cost.

Buy the course I have been working with Lambda and got the basics down. I'm looking for quick reference materials to help me learn about best practices for working with Lambda.

Study the "AppSync Masterclass"

In this video course, you will learn GraphQL by building a Twitter clone using AppSync, Lambda, DynamoDB, Cognito, Vue.js and Amplify.

Along the way, you will have all your questions answered about GraphQL vs REST, how to test AppSync resolvers both locally and remotely, and best practices for performance, security and building observability into the application so you can debug problems in the wild.

Buy the course I have heard a lot about GraphQL and AppSync and want to see what the fuzz is all about and get some hands-on practice building something myself.

Watch "Complete guide to AWS Step Functions"

In this video course, you will learn the ins and outs of Step Functions, a fully-managed orchestration service that allows you to model and execute even complex business workflows.

By the end of the course, you should have a good grasp of how it works, when to use it, and design patterns and best practices to help you get the most out of the service.

Buy the course I have been working with Lambda for a while, but I want to see how I can build more complex applications and workflows with them. I have heard about Step Functions and want to see how it fits into the picture and how to use it.

I have built production applications on AWS for over 10 years, and have focused on serverless technologies since 2016. I have written over 150 articles on serverless and was amongst the first to be recognized by AWS as an AWS Serverless Hero in 2018.

Let's set up a call and see how I might be able to help you.
